Staff Spotlight: Elliott Chandler
The department is proud to welcome Elliott Chandler as the new department accounting technician! Elliott graduated in May 2021 from Carolina with a degree in mathematics and Russian language and culture and started working with the department in December of 2021.
During the week, Elliott can be found mainly in his office, Hill Hall 106A, at the bottom of the ramp by the band office. In his position as accounting technician, he handles all things financial for the department. This includes making/receiving payments, tracking account balances, and setting up independent contractors (such as guest artists). This vital role helps everything run smoothly from summer workshops to visits by guest artists to payroll for students, staff, and faculty.
While an undergraduate student, Elliott participated in several music classes, including playing with the Marching Tar Heels and singing with the Carolina Choir. Those courses and the time he spent in and around Hill Hall were a lot of what drew him to working here. Apart from singing, Elliott also plays the trumpet and piano.
Outside of work, Elliott enjoys traveling, particularly road trips, kayaking, and singing with friends. And something you might not know about him – Elliott and his roommate co-founded the UNC-CH Barbershop Club in the fall of 2019!
“We had a lot of fun, and even performed at a First Fridays pop-up concert.”
